E100-41: Psalm 23:1 - 23:6: A psalm of the life of faith




Perhaps the best known and popular psalm among both Jews and Christiansbut not easy to categorise, except that it expresses trust in God. The imagery makes even better sense when some geography and culture is understood:
  • sheep follow shepherds, they are not left on the hills and then driven

  • green pastures, means land where there is some green vegetation, not just rocks and dust

  • wadis: steep sided gorges, semi-desert little vegetation, quick run off from hills = flash floods
